All-Star Tony Watson's ERA nearly doubled as the Pirates gave up another late lead without Melancon throwing a pitch. #bowlofjello

Murphy has become such a professional hitter. Great pa vs Melancon. He's pacing towards 200 hits for the season. #mets

Frieri will wear No. 29 with #pirates. His locker is set up between @VANIMAL_46 and Melancon.

After Ike cannot turn DP, Mets now have runners on corners with 2 outs. Bobby Abreu pinch hitting vs. Melancon. #Mets 2, #Pirates 2, top 9

Pirates closer Mark Melancon enters for 9th. Has allowed only 1 homer in past 100.1 IP. That was to Lucas Duda, who bats 9th in 9th.

Frieri fits the Pirates' acqisition mold in that he under-performed his FIP like Burnett, Liriano and Melancon before him

Huntington said Mark Melancon will remain the closer but noted Frieri's closing experience

Frankly, Mark Melancon owners should be happiest. I saw Grilli as a much more serious threat to his job security than I do Frieri.
